HIKARI ARTS 光
LET YOUR PASSION SHINE!
Music, drama and Japanese lessons in Swindon
‘Hikari’ meaning ‘light’ or ‘shine’ in Japanese
Firstly, our name ‘Hikari Arts’ and motto ‘let your passion shine’ is based around the idea that people really shine when they are being themselves and doing what they enjoy! Therefore, we aim provide an experience that students really love!
Secondly, Nina (our half Japanese, sushi loving owner) is passionate about sharing the amazing Japanese culture with others through Hikari Arts. So of course we thought it would be apt to have a unique name which reflects her ethnic roots.
Our school is faith inspired and built upon Christian principles. Consequently, our name reflects the verse in the bible: “I am the Light of the world. He that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8: 12)
HISTORY OF HIKARI ARTS
Formally ‘Swindon Piano N Drama’, we started eight year ago with just ten students in a small room. Now many months later, we have dozens of people come through our doors to take part in our creative programmes!
Since we changed our name to ‘Hikari Arts’ we have even more people taking our friendly individual and small group tuition!
OUR LOCATION IN SWINDON
We are located right in the heart of Swindon town centre next to the central library. The Town Hall is a Grade II listed building with a rich history. We benefit from our unique association with Swindon Dance as well as the superb facilities that the building has to offer. This includes a professional theatre which we use for our student shows!
